Masaba Gupta, apart from being a celebrated fashion designer, is a die-hard food lover. Yet, beyond the glitz of runway shows and fabric swatches, she finds simple joy in savoring delightful breakfasts. Recently, Masaba shared a glimpse into her morning routine, which intriguingly combines physical fitness with a nourishing start to the day.

Before a session of early morning cardio, Masaba treats herself to what she calls an "old-school breakfast." This isn't just any breakfast; it's a plate of crispy, golden-brown French toast brimming with innovation and comfort.

Protein-rich Breakfast: Omelette-Filled French Toast

Masaba’s French toast goes beyond the traditional. The omelette filling, which contains finely chopped vegetables to add texture and flavour, perfectly balances the dish's crispy edges and soft, fluffy centres. You can add a layer of fresh spinach on top, to make the eggy bread more delicious with the freshness of the greens.
